Town Confirm Edwards Staying to 2014 Thursday, 31st Jan 2013 17:58
Town have confirmed that skipper Carlos Edwards has activated a clause in his contract entitling him to an extra year at Portman Road, as TWTD revealed on Sunday. The Trinidadian will now remain with the Blues until the summer of 2014.
By making his 30th start of the season at Bristol City on Saturday, Edwards triggered the option for a second year which was included in the contract he signed in April.
Meanwhile, Town have said striker Aaron Mclean will stay on loan at Portman Road for the remainder of the season as planned.
No ones fault but the Club who gives a 34 year old an option for another year although to be fair, last season he looked to be our quickest player. This season he has to be frank been woeful and his legs seem to have gone. Apart from one super run and cross against Burnley he has provided little or no service to our strikers. All I can say is JET must be woeful in training if he is not better than Edwards.
Ummm. I like him but have doubts about his leadership and motivational qualities and his recent performances have been decidedly average. I think it is time for a change on the right (and left) of midfield. Will be interested to see Wordsworth on Saturday - is he poetry in motion?
Carlos Edwards is not to blame for getting this contract, it's a combination of Clegg and the managers who have played him this season.
It sounds like the contract automatically gets activated once Carlos had played 30 games! And why if Ipswich have used him for 30 games why shouldn't a 34 year old activate the the extra year?? I'm sure it's on above average wage, and to be fair he hasn't played that great and I'm sure he wouldn't of got the contract were paying him elsewhere! Not Micks fault he hasn't got many other options!!!
What a waste of time and money. Instead of giving dross like him another year we should be clearing out the players who have put us in the position we are in now. Martin and Chopra should follow Scotland and Ellington up the road. Just reflect on where we are in the league now and where we have finished the last two seasons if you belive these players are worth keeping
hhmmmmm...strange how he's lost form, the last 2 times I saw him last year he was easily our best player. Just hope he's not clock watching now until his contract runs out. Hope he rediscovers his touch!
Should think that Carlos is like a cat that got the cream after triggering the clause in his contract as his performances this season have been well below par and he's lucky that he's made 30 appearances to trigger the clause.
